What Can I Do About Mild to Moderate Signs of Aging Besides Plastic Surgery?

Abraham Medical Cosmetics offers multiple solutions for wrinkle reduction for those who may not want or be ready for a more invasive cosmetic surgery procedure. Photofacial rejuvenation uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to reduce the appearance of many skin conditions that often show our age: fine lines, hyperpigmentation (sun spots), and even acne scarring.

Our ReFirme™ skin tightening system works to tighten areas of lax skin that may make us appear tired or older than we are from sagging brow skin, under-eye bags, and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. As we age our skin loses collagen, the scaffolding that keeps tissue supple and young-looking. However, treatments with ReFirme™ help to increase collagen production to rebuild the underlying structure in the skin, giving it a tighter and firmer appearance.

Light and laser treatments generally need multiple sessions for patients to see full results, though these results can last up to two years. Immediately after treatments, patients often notice a difference in the feeling of their skin and see full results after just one treatment.

We also offer facial injectables to help slow the signs of aging that work within the skin to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles or replump areas of lost volume. After years of repeated facial expressions, our skin tends to furrow or wrinkle around the eyes and forehead, hence the cause of crow’s feet, laugh lines, and furrowed brow lines. Botox® and Dysport® are both made from purified Botulinum and work by relaxing the muscles beneath the skin that are often the culprit of the fine lines that show our age.

As collagen production slows, certain areas of the face and even the hands begin to become hollowed out or lose volume. Facial fillers like Radiesse® and Restylane® fill these areas to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and rejuvenate a youthful visage. Radiesse® has an added benefit as it boosts collagen growth to continue the anti-aging process for up to a year after initial injection.

Patients who choose dermal injectables like Botox® and Dysport® will see results within 4 days of treatment, with full results visible around 10-14 days after treatment. Botox® users’ results generally last for 3-4 months, while Dysport® users can see results for up to 4-6 months. Radiesse® and Restylane® users will notice results immediately that will last 6 months to a year.
